Here we are, 2009 at last. Weâ€™ve heard so much about it, now we can see for ourselves.
If you were here with us on New Yearâ€™s Eve, I know you had a great start to the New Year. Personally, this was one of my favorites. Recalling it now, just days later, I was wondering just why that was?
Everyone looked great, lots of gorgeous dresses, interesting party hats and cheery champagne grinsâ€¦just like always. There was lots of hand holding and picture taking and honks from those crazy noisemakersâ€¦just like always. The band this year, Lavay Smith and the Red Hot Skillet Lickers really picked it up a notch and the music, the countdown to midnight and all those romantic â€˜Gone with the Windâ€™ kisses that proceeded it were so wonderful to watchâ€¦just like always.
I had a birdâ€™s eye view of all the action perched at the bar with my sweetheart on one side and my Scullers family on the other, realizing there is no other place Iâ€™d rather beâ€¦just like always.
And that is what I found so inspiring this New Years, even with all the inauspicious warnings and predictions about 2009, we do what we always do, we persevere, this time of year in particular, by cherishing our tried and true customs, being surrounded by our loved ones and living the day that is presented to us. How wonderful is that?
On behalf of everyone here at Scullers and the Doubletree Guest Suites-Boston, we wish you and your family a Healthy and Prosperous New Year and will look forward to creating more memorable moments with you in 2009!!
Until next time, weâ€™ll catch you at the show.
